Murray Slavin


Murray is thoroughly holistic in his approach to architecture, viewing the discipline as the site of convergence between art, science, culture, philosophy and spirituality.  Murray would like to see more sustainable and adaptable structures cropping up in Perth, buildings designed for multiple (and changing) uses over the long term. He also favours asymmetric forms shaped to let in the plentiful sunlight. If he hadn't been an architect, Murray would have been a fighter pilot - now he has the best of both worlds, architecting during the week and flying planes for fun on the weekend.

Jake says the best thing about his job is designing things that becomes real. His love of design for the real world extends to woodwork - he can be found building furniture in his shed on the weekends.

Stuart Neal


Stuart is one of those work-life-blend people who enjoys his work so much he would hardly call it a job at all. Very much a 'people person',  Stuart rates working with exceptional people as his favourite part of the job, alongside his ability to positively impact upon people's day to day lives through the projects he has been a part of. Stuart is an advocate of 'quality over quantity' instead of reactive design and false economies, a stance that is informed in part by Frank Lloyd Wright, whose uncompromising commitment to the integrity of architectural design resulted in some of the most celebrated buildings of the 20th Century.

Tuan Ngo

Graduate of architecture

There was a time when Tuan wanted to be a Jesuit priest. Luckily for us, he was called to architecture instead. Tuan is passionate about sustainability, and has received multiple awards recognising his skill in this area, including the [design]ability Award for affordable housing. Tuan brings this commitment to sustainability to the office every day, where he is responsible for the office worm farm.

anjana balakumar

graduate of architecture

Anjana's interest in Environmental Design stems from her childhood pipe dream of being an archaeologist (Indiana Jones, specifically). However, it turns out she much prefers creating artefacts to discovering them. When she's not drawing concept plans, Anjana likes to read, practice archery, and head out for long nature walks.

Mel credits British multi-disciplinary designer Kathryn Tyler as a key inspirational figure in her own career trajectory, and that is about the only serious comment we have been able to extract from our resident office prankster. Despite incidents involving fake cockroaches, Mel remains a permanent member of our team (because she's the best draftsperson we know).
